Abstract:

Stockwell Brook Dam is an earth dam with a concrete cut-off wall. The dam is approximately 139 feet long and 24 feet high. The spillway is a drop chamber structure with two waste pipes draining the chamber. The weir length at the top of the spillway is 8 feet, and the crest level can be adjusted through the use of stop logs. The dam is small in size with a significant hazard potential. This type of spillway is very susceptible to obstruction by ice and other debris. The dam is in fair condition at the present time. Improved maintenance is required at the dam. Keywords include Inspection, Dam safety, Merrimack River Basin, Wilton, New Hampshire, and Stockwell Brook.
